Not the right fit for me but a good place
Manager, Field Publicity & Marketing Partnerships (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CAJuly 9, 2018
Coming from a large, thriving company, the culture felt secretive and separatist. Not a good fit for me, but it might be great for someone transitioning from a small company or someone who prefers less collaboration. Also there are some very smart people I felt lucky to meet.

I worked many years there and if HR and management does not like you, you will never get a new job
Coordinator Assistant (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJune 22, 2018
I think this is one of the most political biased places a worker could go to. Great if your an ex or manager, awful to be a worker, union is even worse if that is possible
Pros
A job
Cons
No advancement, awful management and really hard to get a better job

Average place to work at in entertainmnet
Director (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJune 10, 2018
Very top-heavy, with little attention paid to the "grunt workers" greasing the wheels. Schedules are flexible, gym on-site. Turnover has been rampant due to the structural changes taking place. So much potential here but the leaders at the top can't see the forest for the trees. Lots of talented, smart people at this company.
Pros
Benefits, Holidays off, Gym on-site
Cons
Work-Life Balance isn't great, Compensation poor

Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 29, 2018
Long hours. No work life balance. Lots of politics. Major re-engineering going on. Blame game is rampant. Everyone is scared for their job. Management is more spreadsheet driven than people driven.
Pros
Woking on the lot you see some movie stars
Cons
No work life blance

Sony a difficult but rewarding place to work
Technical Integration Specialist (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMay 4, 2018
At Sony you will face a heavy top loaded structure with limited appetite for change but a rhetoric of advertising themselves for change. There are many opportunities and good people there, but if you have an ambitious, creative and progressive attitude this might not be the place for you.

Worldwide Product Fulfillment Consultant (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CAMay 4, 2018
I learned a lot at Sony and liked my position in Worldwide Product Fulfillment (WPF). The culture and management were great. It was definitely a perk to work on the lot where you have plenty of room to walk around in the sunshine, be social, and eat! Plus, you might see some stars around if you keep your eyes peeled.

Pager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 26, 2018
I liked working here for the most part but it became uncomfortable after awhile. People would shout at each other for not following vague directions. My job was that of a pager for a tv show. We worked to gather the audience and take them to their seats.
